For anyone who wants their social media messages preserved as if they were ancient artifacts, there is now a company that makes cuneiform tablets out of actual Tweets.

Dumb Cuneiform makes hand-etched, kiln-fired tablets on which transliterated Tweets are inscribed in ancient Persian script. The cuneiform tablets can be made from any Tweet, text, post or caption that the buyer requests. The social media text is translated into Old Persian, which was current around the year 500 B.C., then carved onto a palm-sized piece of clay and fired for durability and to create an antique aesthetic. The resulting cuneiform tablet preserves most favorited or highest upvoted post for perpetuity.

With the holidays right around the corner, these cuneiform tablets could be a great gag gift for the social media-obsessed member of a family or friend group.
